My name is Dakota, and this is my site Handbook for the Traveling Student.
This blog is my follow on service project for the Gilman Scholarship. In this blog, I will be giving advice not only about the Gilman scholarship but about packing, preparing and living abroad in London.
My blog will be centered around London’s different tourist attractions, markets, and museums. I will rate them and recommend which ones I would go to and which ones I’d skip.
I will also go through the positive and negative aspects of homestay versus apartment living. I will be telling my personal experience with ATM fraud and my own encounter with the National Health Service.
I hope to help anyone who is uncertain about studying abroad with explaining different ways to pay for study abroad, pack and prepare to live in a completely different culture.
As the British would say, Cheers!
